(Series 34, ep. 40 by Debbie Owen 8.8.20) My full review of this episode is over at Metro, so off you prance, my pretties. But not before you’ve read this bit…
– Jason Durr is astonishingly good as David, isn’t he? He does a lovely job of showing David’s struggles with his mental health and that this is just a part of who he is – a man who is kind, caring, awkward, funny and charming. And an excellent nurse.
– I really hope nothing ever goes wrong between him and Rosa, because it’s a lovely partnership and I like that he’s found someone who really sees all his quirks and qualities.
– Aside from the wonderful David, we had Dylan deciding to take his life into his hands by ‘having a word’ with Lev about his extra-curricular activities. I think this may have resulted in Dylan getting a smack in the mouth if Connie hadn’t happened to be passing by.
– But I actually think he should have kept quiet. It’s not his argument to pick, and would it really help Faith to detonate her marriage while she’s trying to stay strong for Luka? Lev has issues he needs to work through, but presumably he’ll reach his own conclusions in his own time.
– Though for plot reasons I’m quite interested to see how it all blows up, and whether Faith and Dylan end up together.
– I’m less excited to find out if Fenisha and Ethan end up together. She seems to be belatedly realising he is a Good Egg, and of course it’ll have to come out at some point that she’s still pregnant and he has Huntington’s disease and the baby may have inherited it. That’ll be dramatic. But the way she switched affections between him and Will then back again suggests she maybe isn’t that reliable. We’ll see.
